I understand there is a fee to refinance your existing home loan when it is fixed. Please advise if a lending institute would absorb this fee when refinancing.

  • Hi Duchess

    You'll be able to do that if you have enough equity in your home to allow the extra borrowings.

    For example, if you owe $300,000 and the break cost to get out of your fixed rate is $5,000 you just need to borrow $305,000 from the new lender.
